Bread and Roses brings together a multigenerational mix of female-identifying artists, writers, and others to exchange ideas about women in the arts over food and drink. Hosted by MoMA PS1 with Negar Azimi, Pati Hertling, Mina Stoneand Anicka Yi, the event features a dinner provided by Lil’ Deb’s Oasis, and toasts from Hannah Black, Justin Vivian Bond, Kimberly Drew, Eileen Myles and Alice Waters and distinguished others. Guests are prompted to wonder: What are our specific needs as creative people? How can we more actively support one other in our efforts? Drawing upon the Hellenic custom of the symposium (from the Greek sympinein “to drink together”) in which the ancients gathered amid feast, song, and dance to discourse on philosophical questions, this program combines serious discussion with celebration—out of the belief that debate, collectivity, and activism are produced by mind and body alike.Buy tickets/get more info now
